Took a large group, this place has great mini golf cores and and ok water park, I think for what you get they could shave about 2-4$ of the price of a ticket. But all and all if you have never been and are lOoking for a fun spot for a few hours and are willing to wait in long lines it's worth the trip.

We are a family of four with two kids ages 7 and 11. The entire day was fun. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the park, the water and the rides. The lifeguards were well trained: we witnessed a "surprise" drowing where a lifeguard had to jump in to save a drowning victim only learning afterward that it was a test...impressive! But the lines were extremely long and the wait to get an innertube was very poorly managed. I would guess that approximately 40% of our time was spent waiting for a tube and then waiting in line again for the ride. Some people started to get slightly aggressive and possessive with their tubes which could have been managed much better by the staff.

We went to Golfland Sunsplash for the mini golf. More and more mini golf places are going under but this one is going strong with the traditional outside courses (2) with mini buildings and fun craters, zig zags, water obstacles etc. We arrived at opening on a weekday which was great because in July it was hot when we left but ok when we arrived. The boys had fun. They gave us an extra ball in case the ball went in the water. (it did and I was thankful not to have to give up our place in the rotation and walk back to the place inside to get another!) You have to go thru the arcade to get to the mini golf so expect to drop some money there or at the snack bar. The holes were good. Nothing too hard but nothing super easy either. The money was what was expected. Seniors and kids get a slight discount but still for an outing where kids and parents are unplugged in the sunshine is worth it. A good filler if you have events in the area and have some down time. All in all it is a nice, safe, place but I warn you if your kids see the water park which they will that will be next on their list.

My friends and I like to be dropped off to swim and ride a few rides at a time. My best friend and I love the Stealth and the Master Blaster. We always have a great time when we go, and I might go again this week. We have season passes, and think that the 10 dollar discount for renewal is a better deal than getting a new one. Also, if you buy a pass early, then you will get a discount for almost half off! Its great, and I wish that everyone could enjoy it just like i have.

Sometimes a business has got to admit that they are letting customers down and offer a slight price adjustment to compensate . On our 6/22/11 visit, 2 popular rides...master blaster and the black hole were closed. Master blaster was posted on the door as being closed and no refunds would be allied. We drove 3 hours for dd's birthday so oh well. Entrance inside the waterpark took 45 minutes even though we purchased slide tickets and prepaid cabana rental in advance. There was actually no convenience at all for advance pay...we waited in same long line as everyone else who did not prepay, then we had to wait in another line for cabana...then another line to wait to have bag searched and final wristbands checked...extreme lack of organization. Cabana nice and watermark clean. Time to eat...learned that an attendant does not come by for cabanas...what?? I have never been to any waterpark or resort where food and drink attendants don't cruise by for orders. Ice cream line 20ish minutes to order and then move one line over for another 20ish minutes to actually receive it. Food line shorter...whole process takes maybe 25 minutes total...ha! No separate soda line. Would have used vending machines to settle but the 3 of those had money accepting mechanisms that did not work and no maintenance avail to fix. So plan on at least 2 hours of the day in line keeping the kids fed and watered. Signs posted everywhere...no refunds for this and that. Snack bar out of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, straws and lids...so good luck caring those sodas back to the cabana through the crowd without spilling. Pizza dough was gushy...semi raw and stretchy. Just remember no refunds for anything. Finally made it to a slide line with kids. We chose the revolution...about a 50 minute wait....so hot in line...feet burnt on bottoms when you reach final steps on top in hot sun. Lines amplified due to other unposted slide closures such as black hole and 3/4 of kiddie park-had huge bucket...play structure out of commission. Not much avail for kids less than 48 inches. Training in progress for lifeguards so we had supervisors dodging in and out of our cabanas to hide with the fake drown victim so they can toss it in the water without the lifeguards seeing them. Some privacy....just remember there are no refunds. I wouldn't have even bothered trying because if they had a line for that it would have surely been out the door too. At some point a business needs to admit that they are strained beyond their means...things do happen and offer something as simple as a free round of mini golf or other minuscule token of sympathy. We will never return to Sunsplash waterpark in Roseville again.
